The Myth

Everything in our store was created by hobbits.

The Real Story

Plaid Oak was started in 2010 on Tybee Island, Georgia as an upcycled furniture shop that featured handpainted designs.

Our family of six has had extensive camping experience over the last few years, and Plaid Oak has followed our family trend and is now a wanderlust, camping and overland apparel & decor shop— mostly.

We will be adding new designs consistantly, so be sure to check back often!
